Make the ocean an even greater part of your life!

Marine Option Program, or "MOP," students work with scientists and the community on marine or fresh water projects to explore their interests, learn more about the ocean, and gain certification of their achievements. 

MOP is an academic subject certificate program with a long and distinguished history.  Across the state and the nation, graduates of the program at Kauai CC and other campuses in the UH System are employed in research, education, resource management, tourism, and more - in both the public and private sector.
